Contributors to this volume demonstrate how the ethics of care factors into a variety of social policies and institutions, and can indeed be useful in thinking about a number of different social problems. Divided into two sections, the first looks at care as a model for an evaluative framework that rethinks social institutions, liberal society, and citizenship at a basic conceptual level. The second explores care values in the context of specific social practices or settings, as a framework that should guide thinking.

Finally, a serious, interesting and thought-provoking discussion of care and caregiving by serious scholars. Socializing Care will be of interest to all human service professionals who have struggled with their identity as "professional caregivers" (AKA "women's work") and other dilemmas associated with professional caregiving. Hamington and Miller locate the discussion of care at the nexus of private (family-based) caregiving responsibilities and public legal obligations. This analysis will be a welcome addition to the human service literature and an important resource for future professional caregivers. -- Nancy A. Humphreys, Professor and Director, Institute for the Advancement of Political Social Work Practice, University of Connecticut School of Soc Socializing Care is a vibrant example of how feminist philosophy can come to life as social policy with care at the center. A fabulous collection of essays that shows not only the intelligence, but the practicality of feminist care ethics. -- Bonnie Mann, assistant professor of philosophy, University of Oregon Socializing Care brings together over twenty years of scholarship in feminist ethics and social and political theory, and takes it in important new directions. The essays challenge us to rethink classical liberalism and its focus on autonomy and rights. There is a call for a fuller account of what it is to be a person, a citizen, and a government. Sensitive to the dangers of a paternalistic state, these essays insist that care is part of the proper role of the state, and provide a rich array of examples from which to learn. -- Erin McKenna, associate professor and chair, department of philosophy, Pacific Lutheran University A superb collection promoting the use of care perspectives to extend and enhance work in the area of applied ethics and social and political thought, Socializing Care clearly demonstrates the difference this important theoretical perspective makes. The collection provides both local and global perspectives on the role of care in the public domain, and is sure to enrich and enliven debates about the value and relevance of care ethics. -- Nancy Tuana, professor of ethics, philosophy, and women's studies, Penn State University
